We are soliciting applications from bright researchers motivated to work on the defining issue of climate change to join our research institute. Career paths are designed for researchers to grow in a nurturing environment with guided supervision and clear steps toward tenure.  Due to an expanded portfolio of projects and our belief in multi/disciplinarity, we […]

Inspired by the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Assessment Reports (IPCC AR5 and AR6), LOCALISED developed its business vulnerability assessment framework to reflect the latest knowledge in the field of climate change risk assessment. Using the IPCC Risk Framework, the risk imposed by decarbonization pathways to regional businesses and industries can be calculated through […]

Due to climate change, more frequent heatwaves will increase the global demand for electricity by 7% by 2050, and by 18% by 2100, calling for either considerable energy investments or strong mitigation strategies. A new study published today in Nature Communications by researchers from the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, the European Institute on Economics and […]

We have the technologies. They are affordable. Experts of the “Structure for a green transition for mobility and infrastructure” established by the Italian Ministry for Sustainable Infrastructure and Mobility explain how to reduce emissions and energy use for Italy’s transport sector in an article published today in Nature Italy.  “Technologies that allow Italy to reduce transport […]

A new paper in Oxford Open Climate Change, published by Oxford University Press, indicates that, while various models to measure the economic impact of reducing carbon emissions show low current economic benefits, after 2050, most scenarios show higher benefits than costs. These benefits are the largest in developing countries. Climate stabilization pathways reviewed by the […]

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published the next major assessment of climate policy, the report “Mitigating Climate Change“, as the third volume of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). Three Authors from the European Institute on Economics and the Environment were specifically contributing to these chapters: Chapter 1: Introduction and Framing, Valentina Bosetti Chapter […]

Acting on the ambitions to a net-zero EU: roadblocks, challenges, and opportunities October 5-7 2022, online/Brussels This year`s EMP-E Conference under its new name “European Climate and Energy Modelling Platform (ECEMP)” will be held online on October 5-7, 2022. The submission portal and more information about the guidelines for abstracts is now available on the conference website. The deadline […]

The key emerging mitigation and adaptation options can be used by local businesses to overcome the challenges of a transition to net-zero. This is quite challenging and not an easy path to follow without the right knowledge, instruments, and objectives. The main objective of this part of the LOCALISED project is to provide end-user solutions […]

The aim of the 2022 NAVIGATE-CIRED Summer School is to foster scientific exchanges between participants and faculty members about the issue of how to achieve a just and equitable transition to net zero emissions, and the modelling methods relevant to address the different dimensions to this broad issue. What are the short and medium term […]
